Yep. Reminds me of something I read some years back. Seems that almost 2/3rds of the people who move to Florida end up moving away again within 18 months. Why? They visit during the fall/winter/spring and love the place; they spend one hot, humid, buggy summer here and decide it's not the place for them.
